Don't use their "shuttle service"
This hostel has a great location and the staff is friendly! They have free wifi and a nice little restaurant with patio. The only negative thing we experienced was their advertised "shuttle service". Turns out they don't have a shuttle and they sent a taxi to pick us up from the airport which we had to pay ourselves (it was $30!).

It's in the middle of the city so you can walk to different things. Clean place and staff is friendly. Only thing is the bathrooms at not part of the rooms, it's more like dorm rooms.

Perfect Stay
This was the second time that I stayed at this hostel. I shared a 6-bed female dorm room the second time and found it nicer than the larger mixed-gender dorm room. Small and cozy. Comfortable beds, sheets, etc. A short walk to bathrooms and showers. A steal for $15. Have a coffee, snack, or drink at the bar in the hostel.

Clean and safe in a busy neighborhood
Dorm-style accommodations. Great lobby and sitting areas. TV, bar, cafe inside. Wi-fi. Tatiana at the front desk was very friendly and helpful with bus schedules and directions. Layout a little haphazard. Main bathrooms on first floor spacious and clean with multiple shower and toilet stalls. On a main bus line from the airport. Overall felt clean and safe in a busy neighborhood.

Charming Hostel
This hostal is in a converted old colonial house with beautiful dark wood doors, windows and tiled floor. The hostal is conveniently located in the west part of San Jose and walking distance to Mercado Central, museums, theater in the heart of San Jose. I was surprised that the hostal was quiet despite being located on street with much inner city traffic. The service and reception desk was excellent and efficient. WiFi worked adequately. There were a few parking spaces in front of the hostal. The cars were safe as the receptionists were able to watch the cars from the large windows from the lobby.
